    so, Arfur suddenly stopped.

    Investigation showed that the mag head wasn't turning.

    Further delving revealed that the mag drive sprocket had sheered away
    from the end of the exhaust camshaft.

    I am having great trouble finding a replacement shaft. The
    AJS/Matchless Owners stock can supply a spindle, but that involves
    pressing the old cam and gear off the old shaft, and on to the new

    Has anyone got a complete spare shaft out there?

    To reply direct, replace the third letter in my email address with
    another 'e'.

    Just in case anyone was wondering...I couldn't source a spare
    camshaft, but found an engineer who drilled and tapped the old one so
    the severed thread and nut could be replaced with a bolt and washer.

    Arfur's back on the road....now to find a suppressor to stop the
    neighbours whinging.....
